Presidio Roofing was recommended to me by my insurance company and base on that I hired them to replace the roof of my house. They did an excellent job and left the yard absolutely clean! The roof inspector, Jonathan Whitaker, organized the whole project and he got the job completed in one day! He is absolutely a skilled professional.Thank you!

Nothing but great things to say about the team at Presidio Roofing. We had a roof leak around our vent hood and they pinpointed the underlying issue and resolved relatively promptly.

Great experience with Jonathan and Presidio Roofing. I had a roof that wasn't an insurance claim, just a very old, flat roof needing replacement, and Presidio had good reviews suggesting they had expertise with different types of roofs, including TPO, which I got. Sure enough, they were professional the whole way through; I got exactly the kind of roof I was looking for; and everyone I dealt with made the process as pleasant as possible. Their estimate and warranty were clear and more comprehensive and cost-effective than other estimates I got. Jonathan and the company acted with a lot of integrity throughout, so I felt I could trust them to honor the agreement.They even offer complementary maintenance inspections after the fact, which is a nice plus. Unfortunately my roof had a lot of hidden damage and took about 2x longer and more materials than expected. It's stressful to deal with such an expensive project, but less so when you feel they're not price-gouging, but trying to honor the original estimate--in fact I think they ate some of the costs to stay closer to the estimate. The work was done well and with good attention to detail and they barely disturbed the house or area at all. Jonathan was flexible with meeting times and was on time, personable, and easy to talk to about questions or concerns. He has a lot of experience and made great suggestions. He was also transparent about the process and great at knowing exactly what would work or not work and remembering every question or request I had about the roof. He spent a lot of his own time examining the old roof beforehand and I felt like he did an outstanding job communicating with the crew, the company, and myself. I highly recommend Presidio and Jonathan as professionals that take your job seriously, will stand by their work, and provide superior customer service. I hope to use them again for the gutter installation.

Presidio Roofing did my roof which was damaged after a storm. The process was super easy, well explained and fast. Everyone I came in contact with was very friendly and knowledgable. The actual crew that came to put on the roof was very mindful of my property and cleaned up after themselves. They sent me pictures of the progress and by the time I came home all was done and cleaned up. The roof looks great! I am very happy with the whole experience and highly recommend Presidio Roofing!

When we replaced our roof, there were tons of roofing companies to choose from. I researched & chose Presidio Roofing because when I mentioned their name to my insurance company they acknowledged that they were a legit & very professional company, plus easy to work with. The work was done very quick & clean. They even showed me an area of plywood which needed to be changed in order for roof to be properly installed. Fast forward a couple of years & I had a minor issue & was put in touch with Presidio and they were very understanding & resolved my issue within hours. I can't say enough good things about Presidio Roofing. I recommend them to all my family & friends. Thanks for everything.

Presidio Roofing came highly recommended from many of my friends and they were absolutely right. The Presidio team told me exactly what I needed and what I did not need. Their crew was fast and efficient. We consulted on the color and it is beautiful. In particular, since the home is older, we had some ugly air vents on the old roof that stood out for all the wrong reasons. Presidio installed modern vents that you do not even notice and are more efficient. From the inspection, to the estimate, to the drop off of materials, to the replacement, to the clean-up, to all the follow-up, Presidio Roofing is a total class company and they will make you house beautiful - and increase it’s value!! Call them - now!!

Metal Roofing Panel Systems

There are fundamentally two different types of metal roofing panel systems: exposed fastener and concealed fastener. You will see concealed fastener systems such as standing seam on homes and businesses whereas you will see exposed fastener systems more commonly on garages, barns, and industrial buildings or large complexes. We use Mcelroy and Berridge brand metal roofing panels the most often but there are many other products available including more custom looks like Bridger Steel.

Pros of a Concealed Fastener System:

  • They require less maintenance and are more durable due to the fasteners being covered
  • They look cleaner and higher end as well
  • They last longer and have better warranties

Cons of a Concealed Fastener System:

  • They are more expensive. The materials are thicker, and the labor is more precise and takes longer.
  • They are not as easy to repair. If a single panel sustains significant damage on a mechanically fastened system, you will likely need to replace all the adjoining panels as well.
  • They take longer to install as they are generally broken on site from the metal coils.
  • There is a unique cosmetic issue called “oil canning” that can occur when you have long sheets of metal roofing. It gives an appearance of waviness and can make perfectly good panels looks distorted. There are ways to solve this by using backer rods or other installation methods, but it will sometimes occur on even the most perfectly installed metal roofs.

Pros of an Exposed Fastener System:

  • They are easier to repair since replacing an individual panel is as simple as removing some screws
  • They are easy and quick to install
  • They are the cheapest metal roofing option available
  • Corrugated panels are very efficient at directing water off any roof

Cons of an Exposed Fastener System:

  • They don’t look as polished and thus are not generally considered good options for properties that need aesthetic appeal
  • They will leak over time due to the rubber gaskets degrading or the screws rusting
  • They do not hold up to windstorms well compared to mechanically fastened systems
  • Corrugated panels can hold more debris like leaves and can accumulate snow and ice easier than flat panels

As you can see, the two main types of roofing panels systems have plenty of pros and cons for each, and they both have scenarios where they are clearly the best option. At Presidio Roofing when you need a metal roof replacement in San Antonio or across Texas our project managers will come walk you through which system makes the most sense for your property.

Stone Coated Steel

If you are not interested in a panel system but do want the strength and durability of metal, another great option is stone coated steel. Stone coated steel is a unique product where natural stone granules, mined from specific quarries world-wide, are adhered to the top of base steel sheets that are formed to varying profiles. The steel base panels are a layered with zinc-aluminum to prevent rusting and are made to look like, tile, shake, and even shingles. The stone granules give color and variability in the looks of each panel and make this product so unique. The two main manufacturers of this product are Tilcor and Decra and we have extensive experience installing both of their systems on both residential and commercial roofs.

Pros of a Stone Coated Steel Roof:

  • Most stone coated products have warranties protecting against hail damage by stones up to 2.5” in diameter. These warranties are some of the most significant warranties for protection against hail damage in the whole roofing product industry.
  • The look of these roofs is very high end and appealing to most people
  • These roofs provide greater value for your property from a financial perspective
  • You can get significant homeowners insurance discounts for having these roofs (or any class 4 hail rating roof)

Cons of a Stone Coated Steel Roof:

  • These roofs generally have wind warranties of 120mph. It is extremely rare to see wind speeds above that but there are other products out there with higher wind warranties.
  • These roofs are generally one of the more expensive roofing systems on the market
  • They are highly susceptible to foot traffic damage, meaning no one should be walking on these roofs after they are installed

Quality Metal Roof Installation

The quality of the installers and project managers on any metal roof is of the utmost important. While sub-par installation of a shingle roof can often be remedied easily it is very difficult to correct a poorly installed metal roof. Especially on a custom fit, concealed fastener system, there is no room for error. When you are considering hiring an experienced metal roofing contractor in San Antonio you should make sure to have their project manager show you some previous jobs. Keys errors and cut-corners to look for include:

  • Over-torquing the screws
  • Chimney and wall flashings being glued as opposed to cut in
  • Uneven ridge and hip cap metal
  • Uneven cuts at the end of panels
  • Chimneys without crickets
  • Plumbing pipes or vents touching or in the middle of a seam between two panels
  • Using tar felt paper

There are also two key “best practices” for any standing seam metal roof that any quality metal roofing contractor would include in their bid.

  • Using high temp ice and water shield as underlayment. This costs more than synthetic felt but will virtually guarantee you never have a leak regardless of what happens to the metal itself
  • Using backer rods to help mitigate potential oil canning
